SCS Sketch Challenge

I should be doing a zillion other things but I'm waiting for our handyman to come give me an estimate on work so I decided to play along with the SCS card sketch challenge again this week. I've had enough of Halloween cards for a while so for some reason, I grabbed my snowman from The Angel Company's Merriest Wishes set. I love these four little characters!

I think that I must have watercolored on the backside of my watercolor paper - it just did not want to blend at all and soaked up and stayed immediately where the ink landed. I never knew that there was a difference so I will have to be much more careful in the future...sigh... Still, I plowed forward as I hate to give up on an image (it's just paper...I know! argh)

I had the hardest time with the little strip for the sketch in the center...I wanted something eye catching and different. I had a great flourish from a Sizzix die I bought (and hadn't used) last year but it wasn't quite right. I wanted snowflakes but there were flowers in my background DP so I grabbed my Martha Stewart hydrangea punch...it's my ode to summer!



Card Materials: Merriest Wishes from The Angel Company
Accessories: Sizzix die, MS punch, Tombow markers, watercolor paper


Thanks for stopping by today - hope your week is going well. I may just go back and stamp a little saying in the bottom right corner but for now, chores await me!
